Summary
Historians have made widespread use of diaries to tell the story of World War II in Europe but have paid little attention to personal accounts from the Asia-Pacific Theater. This book examines over 200 diaries, and many more letters, postcards, and memoirs, written by Chinese, Japanese, and American servicemen in the Pacific from 1937 to 1945
